Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
3 Tablespoon(T)  butter
1 1/2 Cup(c)  potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 1/4 Cup(c)  onion, chopped
1 Pinch(pn)  salt, to taste
2 1/2 Cup(c)  water or homemade chicken stock
2 1/2 Cup(c)  milk
2 Bunch(bn)  watercress, chopped and coarse stalks removed
1 Pinch(pn)  pepper, freshly ground, to taste


Melt the butter in a heavy bottomed saucepan. When it foams, add the potatoes and onions and toss until well coated. Sprinkle with salt and freshly ground pepper. Cover and sweat on a gentle heat for 10 minutes. Add the stock and milk, bring to a boil and cook until the potatoes and onions are soft. Add the watercress and boil with the lid off for 4 to 5 minutes, or until the watercress is cooked. It will taste soft and tender. Do not overcook or the soup will lose its fresh green color. Puree the soup in a blender or food processor. Taste and add a little more salt and pepper if necessary.
